While the horror community has been feeling the ever-increasing effects of the COVID-19 (otherwise known as the coronavirus) global pandemic with numerous conventions either being postponed or cancelled outright, Hollywood had been relatively immune to the situation. However, that changes today as Paramount Pictures and writer/director John Krasinski have announced that A Quiet Place Part II, originally scheduled for wide theatrical release on March 20th has been pushed back to a later as-yet-unknown date in order to prevent large groups of people from congregating in public places due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Picking up with a flashback to what appears to be the start of the invasion of the extraterrestrial beings that plague the Abbott family in 2018’s hit film A Quiet Place, the trailer for the 2020 sequel, A Quiet Place: Part II, seems to promise a much broader scope of land than we were originally shown in the first film; which was mainly centered at the family home and surrounding areas.
Once again written and directed by John Krasinski, the film brings back his wife Emily Blunt as Evelyn Abbot, Millicent Simmonds as Regan Abbott and Noah Jupe rounding out the returning Abbot family as Marcus. Joining the cast is newcomer Cillian Murphy who apparently escaped the events of 28 Days Later only to find himself in the midst of another apocalypse. read more
Perhaps the most popular horror movie of 2018, A Quiet Place has a sequel ready to hit the big screen in March 2020. Paramount Pictures is already building the hype, releasing a teaser trailer (below) and announcing that the first official trailer will drop on New Year’s Day. Definitely something to look forward to while recovering from your 2019 hangover.
A Quiet Place, starring John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, was a huge hit for the studio grossing $340 million worldwide on a minuscule budget of around $20 million. It was obvious since that summer a sequel would be in the cards, even as imitators began flooding the (mostly streaming) market (we’re looking at you, Bird Box.) Here is the official synopsis of A Quiet Place II from the studio: read more
A Quiet Place fans better not scream too loudly about today’s special announcement… the creepy crawlies from the movie with extraordinary hearing will surely pinpoint their hiding places! It turns out the monsters will be back on the silver screen soon, and so will Emily Blunt. This time around- due to the spoileriffic events of the original film- her husband, John Krasinski will be directing both of them safely from behind the camera.
Deadline reports that John Krasinski has officially signed on to direct the follow-up to his wildly popular 2018 film, A Quiet Place. The announcement follows previous news that he had already agreed to write the script for the picture. Emily Blunt’s deal to return to the franchise was simultaneously announced with today’s news of Krasinski’s return as director. Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe- the Hollywood power couple’s on-screen children in the first movie- are currently in talks to return for the sequel as well. Given the popularity of the franchise, and the money at stake for the sequel based on the original’s performance at the box office, it’s safe to assume we’ll soon receive word on their official return. read more
THR is reporting that John Krasinski is writing a sequel to A Quiet Place. During a Q&A session at the Silver Screen Theatre in Los Angeles, the former Office star said “Then I had this small idea for a sequel, but I didn’t think it would go anywhere. So, I said to the studio, ‘Just go do the movie with somebody else.'”
As Paramount started to listen to pitches from other filmmakers Krasinski’s creative juices continued to flow. “They heard some pitches, and I told [producer] Drew [Form] about this little idea,” said Krasinski. “And he told me to think about it a little longer. And then I thought, ‘This might really work.’ So, I’m currently writing the sequel.” read more
John Krasinski, the writer/director/star of this year’s breakout hit, A Quiet Place, just hinted that the sequel may not follow the Abbott family of the the original film. Instead, the movie could take place during the same time frame as the first one and focus on the other survivors alluded to throughout the film.
Speaking with Deadline, Krasinski said that he did not have any ideas for a sequel when he initially began working on A Quiet Place:
“To be perfectly honest, it was never really on my mind while we were making it. I never really thought of it as an expanded world; I always thought of it as a one-off.” read more
